Trick or Treat Frame

With the march of trick or treaters on the horizon, it is the perfect time to create a Halloween inspired picture frame that shows off your favorite moment with your trick or treaters.  I made this and gave it to my brother  and sister-in-law so they can show off their daughter's first Halloween!

Creative Wood Staining Methods

While out shopping yesterday, I stumbled across the Chartpak Woodcrafter's Marker.  My fellow co-workers told me that these have been around for awhile but they were new to me and I had a lot of fun enhancing the beauty of our natural unfinished wood using these easy to handle wood stain pens!

During this experiment, I also discovered that our Kelly's Crafts glass stain is also a great way to enhance the natural wood look but by adding a little bit of color.  This was just with a simple one coat of our turquoise stain pen!

I can't wait to incorporate this into more of our project ideas!  I love being able to keep the wood grain and add an extra dimension to my crafts.  I hope it is as inspiring to you as it is to me!

3 Simple Steps Never Looked So Good!

Kelly's Crafts recently added on to their already extensive mix of suncatchers recently with a new line called Color Clings. They are a fun, new way to add some fun to your windows!

All you have to do is three simple steps and you are ready to light up your house with beautiful scenes from fairies to bugs. You just have to Stain, Peel, and Cling! My niece loves the whimsical design of the characters and has spent plenty of afternoons telling me stories about them as they flutter about different rooms in the house. It is a great project that keeps giving after it is done.

Fun Halloween Craft Project

It is getting to be the time of the season when ghouls and witches will be knocking on your door saying "Trick or Treat!"  We have an easy wood and felt based project to help get your house in the spookiness of the season. 

These critters are great to just put around the house or if you are having a Halloween party, you can have the kids make them or make them ahead of time and use them as place card holders.
